Why are there so many similar creatures in folklore all around the world?

They are all from a world outside our own, connecting places all over.

In The Axis Unseen, you can find and hunt these creatures from folklore. #wishlistwednesday
I'm making this game as a solo indie developer using Unreal Engine 5 after 14 years at Bethesda Game Studios where I worked on games like Fallout 3, Skyrim, Fallout 4, Fallout 76 and Starfield.

You can wishlist The Axis Unseen here:…
Also, you can do more than hunt in the game. You explore an open world and discover the secrets of the hunters that came before you.

You will find their writings and drawings about the creatures in the world, which will help you discover their vulnerabilities and history.

Marketing for indies is a huge topic, but here are some basics:

1. Make sure that your game idea fits the market and has something cool about it (a "hook") that will help the game to sell itself because it looks interesting and people want to talk about it.

2. Get a Steam coming soon page live as soon as you can make a video (not a full trailer, just a teaser) and begin to collect wishlists.

3. Keep talking about your game on Twitter and take part in various hashtag things like #wishlistwednesday and #screenshotsaturaday
4. Close to launch compile lists of streamers (who cover the same genre or just fresh indie games) and press, and Steam curators and spam them all with keys.

There's way more you can do such as building a community of course.

Leading Answer: Build a community organically. You can do this by doing two things

First off, stay active and consistent in posting progress about your project. Gifs and Videos are best. Post even if you feel like you have nothing to show
Secondly, engage with other creators - help them when possible, be social, try to grow THEIR project. What goes around comes around
